duration

Another short post, mainly a placeholder. I very much like the following image, by Russian photographer Alexey Titarenko:

Crowd
Viewed from the perspective of a slight temporal extension or duration, running together or blurring the precise chronometric moments fixed in ordinary snapshots (not quite sub specie aeternitatis, but getting there), the crowd shows its commonality. Individuality disappears even as elements of singularity (hands, shoes) remain readily discernable.
